Not cool, Kara Del Toro!
Co-stars Jennifer Connelly and Dakota Fanning were on hand for the premiere of their latest film “American Pastoral,” which goes into wide release on October 21. The film has already screened at a number of film festivals, so it’s possible the producers are trying to make an Oscar run, although it’s getting trashed on sites like Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.
Along with Jennifer & Dakota, the cast also includes McGregor, Rupert Evans and Valorie Curry. Here’s more info:
In 1968, a hardworking man, who’s been a staple in his quaint community for years, watches his seemingly perfect middle class life fall apart as his daughter’s new radical political affiliation threatens to destroy their family.
Dakota Fanning attended the Valentino fashion show Spring/Summer ready-to-wear 2017 during Paris Fashion Week. While it seems like Dakota’s younger sister Elle has been getting more attention recently, let’s not forget that Dakota’s just 22 years old. Dakota stars in “Brimstone” which made its premiere at the Venice Film Festival. You’ll also see Dakota in “American Pastoral”, in theaters on October 21.

Starring Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves, the horror flick “The Neon Demon” premiered last night at The Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. Elle’s sister Dakota was also hand to celebrate. A red carpet standout, at least from our perspective, was the sexy 29-year-old Aussie actress Bella Heathcote.
The film, which hits theaters later this month on June 24, first premiered back at Cannes last month. Here’s more about the film:
Jesse (Elle Fanning), an aspiring model, moves to Los Angeles, where she is recruited by a fashion mogul (Alessandro Nivola) as his muse. Upon entering the city’s modeling industry, she is placed in a penthouse apartment with several of her fellow models, who are shape-shifting vampires who feed and bathe in the blood of other beautiful women in order to maintain and preserve their own youth and vitality. Jesse finds herself torn between her jealous rivals, her jealous and possessive lesbian lover, and those in the fashion industry that wish to exploit the young model. Source

In an attempt to balance things out following the Jonah Hill post, it’s only fitting we post somebody closer to the other end of the body mass spectrum.
Actress Dakota Fanning was seen carrying a large piece of cardboard while out & about running errands in the city earlier today. To the delight of all you dudes who have a thing of extremely pasty, skinny chicks, Dakota was wearing a short black top which showed off her flat stomach! Who’s digging this?
Dakota Fanning stars with Jesse Eisenberg and Peter Sarsgaard in Night Moves. Written and directed by Kelly Reichardt, the film is apart of the main competitin at the Venice Film Festival. The film will is about three environmentalists that plan to blow up a dam. Look for it to be released in US theaters on September 20th.
“No one’s ever comfortable [doing love scenes].”[HP]
Remember your 18th birthday? How you got together with your best friends and ate too much pazooki before going home and sipping shots from your dad’s (un)locked liquor cabinet? Well, Dakota Fanning is not you.
The famously precocious child actor has turned 18 and she celebrated it by doing her first nude scene in the movie Very Good Girls. The film, which played last week at the Sundance Film Festival, details the quest of two teenage girls (Fanning and Elizabeth Olson) who embark upon a quest to lose their virginity before falling for the same guy.
Fanning says rather nonchalantly about her nude scene, “I’ve never done that before and I’m very newly allowed to do that. I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it’s kind of a sensitive thing, but it’s a part of life.”
Well, no one ever said nudity was easy, especially when everyone thinks of you as the adorable kid from I Am Sam.
Just like the 15 other premieres over the past few days, “Twilight – Breaking Dawn 2” held a fashionable screening at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in lower Manhattan. The event was hosted by The Hollywood Reporter & Samsung Galaxy in conjunction with The Cinema Society, so it’s nice to see the film is raking in some cash from other avenues besides just selling tickets at the box-office. The numbers haven’t come in yet, but the ‘Twilight’ finale will probably set a few records before it’s all over. Yay for all the producers who just got a little bit richer. Bastards.
So, did anybody catch the movie last night or what? In the name of creating useless filler, we’re obligated to ask…
Press junket interview w/ Ashley Greene:

Hundreds of looney, diehard fans skipped school & work to camp outside in a tent city near the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles ahead of the big film premiere for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.” I never understood how somebody can convince themselves to do stupid things like camping out for a frickin’ movie? Are they that obsessed? One thing everyone learned for the experience was that the LAPD will condone a tent city for an upcoming movie premiere, but they’ll resort to brutally trashing similar tent cities built by people protesting against the social issues. Great value system, right? Everyone together: “USA! USA! USA!
On a more positive note, it’s about fucking time this series ended and society as a whole can finally move on from the vampire & werewolf bullshit onto some other crap. What’s on tap, anyway? Whatever the hell it is, let’s just hope & pray that there’s better acting and the leads aren’t as depressing as Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson. Actually, Robert Pattinson is somewhat tolerable, but it’s Kristen Stewart who annoys the shit out of me. For the sake of quality film making, Kristen’s career falls apart over the next 12 months. Let’s face it, the girl simply can’t act if her life depended on it!! I guess all that directors & producers can see in her is name recognition & the likelihood that she’ll give them a nice a blowjob & possibly a few nights of no-strings-attached sex. Then again, I think that’s the hope w/ every hot actress in Hollywood?
Let’s turn to the some plot action b/c I’m sure there’s at least one person out there who’s still clueless about how this thing will end:
After being brought back from near-death by Edward after childbirth, Bella begins her new life as a vampire and mother to their daughter, Renesmee. But when Irina, a member of the Denali coven, misidentifies Renesmee as a immortal child, a human infant who has been bitten and transformed into a vampire, to the Volturi, they set out to battle and destroy the Cullens for their betrayal. In a final attempt to survive, the Cullens begin to gather foreign Vampire clans and nomads to stand and witness against the Volturi, including the Denali, the Amazonian, the Egyptian, the Irish and Romanian Covens, with European and American nomads. With their allies, the Cullens and the Wolf Pack stand to prove their innocence to the Volturi once and for all.
